Shocking Socks

Here are a few pictures of an outfit I wore last weekend. The inspiration for this masterpiece was the socks seen in the Dries Van Norten show. I love the idea of socks with heels something so simple that changes a whole look. It also reminds me of little school girl uniforms. All Photos taken by my lovely roommate

Turkey and Blogger

I just found out through Nil Erturk's blog that blogger has been banned in Turkey due to a few blogs violating copyright laws the entire blogging community in Turkey is being punished. Please go like this Facebook page if you feel that this is not right.

My fashion week post

So here it goes my Fall 2011 fashion post, a little late as usual. There are so many things I could talk about but I am choosing to focus on the half chiffon pants done by Gucci and Acne.

Here is Gucci's version:

Notice the color, I am going to call it fussia, it is one of the new "it" colors.

 Now for Acne's version

Acne is a more muted version but I still love the idea of combining the elegant chiffon with the more male idea of pants. I do not think that it would be overly practical to wear but I find it an absolutely beautiful creative idea.
